The Three tips to prevent poor performers from entering your workplace are…


TIP#1: Develop and communicate job profiles to applicants

Job profiles should highlight the following five points…

·         The purpose of the job;
·         The key job responsibilities;
·         Key relationships the applicant needs to build and maintain;
·         Competencies required to perform the job; and
·         Minimum experience and qualifications required to perform adequately in the job.

TIP#2: Review your recruitment practices

Continuously review and, if necessary, adapt your recruitment process in order to reduce the chances of poor performers entering your workplace.

Carry out reference checks to determine whether or not the applicant had issues of poor performance at their previous jobs.

REMEMBER: Past behaviour can be an indicator of future behaviour.

Also, use competency-based interviews and assessments for applicants.

TIP#3: Link the applicant to your organisational culture

Don't just look for an applicant who fits the job, but for one who fits your company's organisational culture.

This will ensure that they'll be dedicated to your company and its vision, which in turn can ensure good performance. After all, you want an employee who believes in what you do, not one who sees the position as just another job.
